"today in the bay's" kris sanchez live at the san jose police department this morning. what are police saying about this case? >> reporter: we know that they've seen the same surveillance video that we've seen from inside that liquor store on saturday night, and our source confirms that at least one of the men in that video is a person they're looking for in the homicide of manuel zuniga. police have that surveillance video that was from the liquor store. inside the store saturday night, and we can tell you that we see at least four people walking into the store. the one person whose face is not blurred out is the one who stole the case of cigars from the countertop. as he runs from the store, he trips and he falls, dropping the
5:03 am
cigars. the owner tells us that's when manny zuniga sprang to action and someone in a car outside shot him. >> i hope that everybody sees their faces and somebody -- some good samaritan out there identifies them. >> reporter: while the investigation continues, so too does the fundraising for the zuniga family. friends and strangers have donated close to $10,000 for his wife and two children. the money helps, but clearly what they want more than anything is justice. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> such a tragedy. thank you very much, kris. police need your help finding a man who beat up a taxi driver and skipped out on paying his fare. take a look at this guy. early sunday morning, the taxi driver dropped his passenger off near cal palace. instead of paying, the passenger allegedly beat up the taxi driver and sent him to the hospital. meantime, in mountain view, police looking for the thieves

5:05 am
lights are being suggested for stockbridge, isabella, and alejandra avenues along el camino. if approved, all are slated to be installed by the spring of 2017. the city estimates more than 31,000 vehicles use that mile and a half stretch of el camino a day. it's considered unsafe because very little really helps pedestrians and bicyclists coexist with cars. a resident was killed as recently as last summer by a car while crossing el camino. 50 collisions occurred during a nine-year period. the city council will consider this new stoplight and the three pedestrian beacons at tonight's meeting, and the city and cal-trans are hoping to be able to pitch in to pay for this $900,000 project. >> a few options being weighed there. thank you very much. let's see how that morning

the city has received 96 inches of snow so far this winter. i repeat, 96 inches. just a few from the all-time record. the biggest concern is the city's aging transit system. it was shut down on sunday because of all that snow. >> i had a friend who was on one of those trains that was completely shut down. tough one. meantime, the city of ithaca, new york, the taking a lighter look at the snow. the tourism office posted this on its website with the words, "that's it, we surrender, winter, you win. key west, anybody." it also posted a link for tourist information to the key west. the high temperature in ithaca is expected to be about 27 degrees. in key west, alternately, the high is around 67 degrees. >> and here in the bay area, christina's got a look at our own forecast. it's pretty nice compared to what they're going through in the east. >> we have a good-looking day shaping up. we are going to talk about that coming up in just a minute. first, though, i want to send it

5:18 am
traffic kick in any time after 5:30, so we should see this start to build in the next ten minutes. we'll track that, and the low clouds hit the south bay pretty good yesterday. i'll track that for you today. it is early to start your workweek, even earlier if you're a kid going to school. but we know there are a bunch of them out there right now. let's try you again from our sister station. telemundo 48 getting involved in our community. good morning. >> good morning. it was just a little problem. live tv. as i was telling you, we are here in castano elementary school. this is in east palo alto. the kids woke up pretty early to show us a little bit of all the projects. you got up pretty early this morning, right? >> yes. >> why? because they want to show you the school here in our new project. it's called telemundo 48.

contagious. at least when it comes to beautifying those utility boxes. the city of campbell has decided to take a cue from san jose and start its own art outside the box project. it allows artists to display their work on city utility boxes. residents 18 years and older are eligible. kind of a cute idea. >> very cool. a little beautification on your wednesday. the world series champs get back to business today. ready to start a brand-new season. >> here we go. taking a live look outside, city by the bay, san francisco. certainly feels like spring in the air. we're ready for a little baseball. ready for some rain, too. we'll see if it's in the works as well. christina's got a look at the forecast. what's that thing?

5:25 am
pablo sandoval showing up 30, 40 pounds overweight. now they're going to have to cut him a little bit of slack. >> i'm sure he's got a good reason for that. you look at the babe, babe ruth, and he's going to throw all that weight behind those hits. we're sorry to lose him, though. we've still got our eye on the giants. after all, we are your broadcast home of the san francisco giants right here on nbc bay area. san francisco, 55 degrees right now. in the north bay, you're at 52. we're going to end up in the mid to upper 60s later on today. 69 degrees for the tri-valley and 64 in san francisco. a man who's always active. you know, your weight doesn't fluctuate much. how do you keep your body in such great shape, mike? >> spanx. >> that's what i thought. >> just kidding. looking over here -- i've never tried them on. looking over here toward 580 westbound, traffic really packing on. the dublin interchange, that's where we see the build.

5:31 am
are looking for at least one of the four men you see walking into that liquor for less store. one man whose face is not blurred is the one who stole the case of cigars from the countertop, and as he runs from the store, he trips and falls, dropping the cigars. the liquor store owner says that's when manuel zuniga sprang to action and someone in a car outside shot him. >> i hope that everybody sees their faces and somebody, some good samaritan out there identifies them. >> reporter: while the investigation continues, so too does the fundraising for the family. friends and even strangers have donated as much as $10,000 to help the family. but what the zuniga family really wants is justice. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> all right, kris, thank you very much. an update on breaking news. san francisco police have made an arrest following a stabbing near union square. stephanie chuang is live.
5:32 am
investigators still looking for other people who might have been involved? >> reporter: that's right, good morning to you, laura and sam. san francisco police confirming that since there was some sort of fight or scuffle that happened inside this 24-hour walgreens here on powell, resulting in at least one person getting stabbed. this is a very popular area across from h&m, right in the union square area. people are in line to hop on a cable car. you see people have been coming by trying to get in. but it is closed right now. two blocks away earlier this morning, after 3:30 this morning, we saw six police officers alongside one young man who was on the ground cuffed. we've confirmed that this was one arrest made by police overnight. now, there were several other officers with flashlights who are out walking around union square, around the park, looking for evidence, perhaps looking for persons of interest.
5:33 am
we do know where one was taken to the hospital. but the condition of that person is unknown. there may be other victims as well. i'm not sure where the stabbing happened, whether it was in the downstairs area of walgreens, or just all the food area, or upstairs where its pharmacy and cosmetics. so still a lot of questions, but this walgreens is closed right now. one store manager telling me it will be at least 6:00 this morning before it's open again. >> thank you very much, steph. all-new this morning, nearly a dozen vehicles up in flames after a fire in the north bay. this happened last night in napa county at a vineyard on old sonoma road west of highway 29. firefighters say flames broke out at a barn with equipment. thankfully nobody was injured. investigators looking into the cause of that fire. we're getting our first look at two gunmen who took over a little caesar's pizza.
5:34 am
police are hoping someone will recognize the unique weapon used in this robbery. police tell the "chronicle" it's either a break action pistol or a shortened shotgun. the clerk was shot during the robbery. the robbers did get away with some cash. the employee should survive. a santa clara university student accused of stabbing his roommate inside of their dorm is going to be in court tomorrow. police say dylan kim stabbed his roommate yesterday and then cut himself. the roommate is recovering in the hospital right now. tomorrow, kim will be arraigned on attempted homicide charges. investigators have not said what led up to the stabbing. parents say a san francisco school went too far when it passed out pamphlets containing questionable material. the chronicle reports children in second through sixth grade at stars of the sea catholic school got the pamphlet that asked questions like did i perform impure acts by myself or with another and have i advised
5:35 am
anyone to have an abortion. parents say the children are too young to know about those kind of things. the latest controversy to strike the catholic church in san francisco today, angry parents and teachers are going to hold a vigil in san francisco. they oppose new morality clauses laid out for high school teachers by the archbishop. the clauses support straight and monogamous lifestyles. the archbishop plans to use them as conditions of employment at four bay area catholic high schools. do you want water? you have to ask for it. that's one of several new restrictions being considered to combat the drought. the water resources board is debating new regulations. one would force thirsty restaurant diners to request drinking water. another would require hotel guests to ask for fresh towels and sheets rather than having them changed every day automatically. board members say the state simply isn't doing enough to limit water use. it almost needs to become a way of life. >> it does. and on that note, christina has done a good job of giving us
5:36 am
ways in which we can conserve water. i have to admit, every single morning when i shave, i think, okay don't leave that water running. >> quick shower. >> so you're thinking about me when you're shaving, is that what we're getting from this, sam brock? right on. we found out from scott mcgrew, he shaves in the shower. so let's keep those personal items coming in. i have to limit my shower as well. it's difficult. i used to like to warm it up, sometimes leaving it running for three to five minutes. don't do that anymore. i jump in cold. as we head throughout the day, temperatures are still going to be on the cool side, even be lunchtime. we'll be at 61 degrees on the east shore at noon, so if you break for lunch, you're still going to need your coat. you can probably ditch it in parts of the bay area by 3:00 p.m. that's the warmest time of the day. 69 degrees for today. in wine country, 66 on the peninsula. looking good for 64 degrees. a warmer day coming your way. in san francisco, as promised, our next rain chance arrives as
5:37 am
we head throughout this weekend into next week. not looking that great, but i do have to tell you about every single opportunity. best chance right now looks like sunday into monday. these showers are beginning to keep out from the south. that humidity will also surge. you'll probably notice that difference by sunday into monday. then we have a better chance. i am watching a system on the 27th of the month that looks very good, very optimistic about this one for rain. significant rainfall right here in the bay area. we'll keep you updated. right now, let's check your drive. mike inouye does not wear spanx. i don't want you to be accused of that. >> now everybody's going to think i wear spanx. but it's obvious that i don't. suck it in. suck it in. over here, the bay bridge toll plaza. all green lights, flashing lights. hov lanes, green lights. we do have a backup, but no metering lights just yet. we'll look over at the map, a smooth flow of traffic. a little slowing shows up for eastbound. not a surprise, not a problem.
5:38 am
there's the upper east shore freeway. let's show you the approaches, coming through the north bay. same thing across that richmond san rafael bridge. antioch, a little slowing for highway 4, typical through that direction. south bay, no delays. the silicon valley or the peninsula. look at that. bayshore freeway and 280. over there, livermore, we'll show you the slowing. dublin interchange, do want to show you the live shot. approaching 680. i was looking for the reason why we see a little extra slowing this morning. the only thing i can think of, no incidents in the altamont pass, so everybody's getting over toward 680 a little earlier than they planned. there it is. the new details we're learning about the train cars involved in that fiery explosion in west virginia. plus, it was supposed to be a big day for thousands of undocumented immigrants, but not anymore. we're live in washington with the delay and the president's immigration order. let's take a live look outside before we leave you just
5:39 am
momentarily. a live look at 101. traffic starting to back up. we are coming back with 15 minutes of nonstop news, traffic, and weather to get you updated. return with us after the break. an adjustment for that. s you can only find sleep number at a sleep number store. right now save 50% on the ultimate limited edition bed. know better sleep with sleep number.
5:40 am
5:41 am
right now, a live look outside at the bay area. the bay bridge all lit up. the dream has been deferred for millions of children brought to the u.s. illegally. they were supposed to begin applying for temporary legal status today. but a federal judge in texas has blocked the president's orders, leaving millions in limbo. >> this court order is about those kids, dreamers who were brought here when they were younger. the court, the federal judge in texas argues that president obama overstepped his bounds in
5:42 am
giving them protection from deportation. essentially putting them at the back of the line, allowing them to stay here legally and go to school and work and giving them work permits and social security numbers. all of that, way beyond what the law allows. so now, many of the nearly two and a half million undocumented immigrants in california, the largest state for undocumented immigrants, are now in limbo. those applications that were supposed to start today, they're not happening. applications for parents of legal residents and citizens are supposed to open up in may. that's in limbo. we don't know if that will be happening based on how the court proceeds. president obama argues that he is on solid legal ground here, that the law is on his side, the justice department is taking a look at this latest court ruling. they will likely appeal. we just don't know how quickly. this is one that we're expecting
5:43 am
is very likely going to land here at the u.s. supreme court. >> gotcha. so that is the likely path. i guess that's expected at this point, or where does the case go from here? >> well, an appeals court is going to have to look at what the federal judge did down in texas and argue and make a ruling on whether or not it's constitutional. whether the government prevails, the obama administration, or whether the 26 states that have sued, texas and these other states prevail, either side is likely to appeal it and that's why we say it's very likely to land here at the court. whether they'll bounce it back to the appeals courts, whether they'll actually take the case, we have no idea at this point. >> and you made an excellent point, the texas judge has not ruled on the constitutionality of the executive order. >> president obama also plans to speak about isis extremists in syria. he is hosting a summit at the
5:44 am
white house focusing on violent extremism and threats both at home and abroad. other speakers will talk about the connection between extremism and faith, gender, even the internet. tank cars were safer than federal law requires. the crash caused numerous explosions and fires. investigators say that crash involved tank cars that already had safety upgrades voluntarily adopted by the industry four years ago. now president obama is urging even tougher standards for trains carrying crude oil. san bernardino county is paying up two years after a manhunt for a rogue ex-lapd officer. a cabin burned down during a gun battle. the owners will get $200,000 as part of a civil suit. authorities say dorner killed four people, including two law enforcement officers in a week-long rampage in 2013. a new measles warning. this one in canada involving up

5:48 am
typical slowing for highway 4 out of antioch. usual speeds dipping about 15 miles per hour. upper east shore freeway, a smooth drive. no metering lights over the last couple of minutes, but we should see in the last few as metering lights turn on. we have a slower drive up the incline. the maze and the east shore freeway, still moving very smoothly right now. looking at a smooth drive all the way down the peninsula. in mountain view, we have a crash north 101 around the amphitheater parkway. a single car went into the cement on the right side, so that is one issue possibly blocking the slow lane. and here the build. let's take you for the live look. this is san jose north 101 and we typically see this. just before 6:00, the volume is causing a slowdown.

5:50 am
speeding cars. an atherton resident was killed as recently as last summer by a car while crossing el camino. at the site, 50 collisions occurred during a nine-year period. the city council is expected to discuss the stoplight and pedestrian beacons. the city and caltrans are expected to help pay for this $900,000 project. live in atherton, nanette miranda, for "today in the bay." this morning, police right now looking for a suspected prostitute who drugged and robbed a fremont man. the woman called herself crissy. you see the picture. police released that pic yesterday in the hopes that somebody would recognize her. the victim hired her through a prostitution website, but when she got to his house, he says that she drugged him, then let three men into his house to beat him up and rob him. the party is over for a popular pride event in san francisco's castro district. pink saturday is organized by the sisters of perpetual
5:51 am
indulgence. this year's party has been cancelled because the sisters don't want to host it. the reason, they say it's become too out of control with too much violence. >> we see it repeated the last couple years, pink saturday has become nothing but a really dangerous place for the neighborhood to be. >> a lot of the violence that we've seen has not been about a hate kricrime. it's just people getting drunk and belligerent. >> city leaders are considering other options including a shorter party and charging people to attend. several bay area people have made the short list to take a trip to mars and it's all part of a project by a non-profit working to establish permanent human life on the red planet. more than 200,000 people applied for the mission, but only two dozen will be sent on a one-way trip to mars. harder to get accepted for that mission than harvard. the non-profit shaved the list down to 100 people, including numerous bay area folks as well as 28-year-old carly compt. his family is not necessarily

5:53 am
will be talking to thousands of kids simultaneously through their plastic dinosaurs. from plastic dinosaurs to exploding liquid dinosaurs, gas prices have been on the rise. though they're still a third less than they were a year ago. we'll get some data later today on u.s. oil supplies, which are expected to be unusually high. that may hold those gas prices down from rising much more. american stock markets doing real well. s&p 500 at an all-time high. the nasdaq at a 15-year high. shares of chipotle are down slightly after "the new york times" did an analysis of the company's burritos and discovered the average burrito has half your day's calories. that said, do you know what chipotle is trading at? i had to double-check my computer. >> i have no idea. >> i don't track it. >> $670 a share. >> are you kidding me? that's not right. >> i checked it three times. cmg. >> which is more times the price of tesla, for comparison?
5:54 am
>> that's right. >> or google for that matter. >> a lot of green guacamole. >> how many burritos could you buy for $600? that's a good question. >> more calories than we would like to ingest. the high 53 right now. let's get a look at your forecast. >> good morning. we have a really good-looking day. everybody can get out there and enjoy some lunch on the water, if that's something you're looking to do. it's going to be cool, but we will see more sunshine at noon than we did yesterday and temperatures are going to end up in the mid to upper 60s to finish off the day. at 69 degrees in the tri-valley. 64 san francisco. let's check on that drive. this is about the time when things really started to get active. >> over here, we're looking at the maze. look at all these vehicles going through. west 80 coming toward the bay bridge. slowing a bit as folks make the merge off the berkley curve. the metering light just turned on. i watched them turn on from our emeriville camera. you do have slowing because
